When we think of agriculture, what comes into our minds first is food and livestock. Indeed, the agriculture industry is one of those very important industries ever since the ancient civilization.
Food is one of our vital needs and people are willing to go to war for food! However, no war is needed and no battle is to happen thanks to our evolving technology.
Right now, because agriculture industry is using agriculture technology, humans are not prone to hunger which is why there’s no need to go to war because of food.
Production of food is now made faster and a lot easier because of the use of robotics in the field of agriculture. Now human labour is replaced by robots and machines that are built to make the agriculture work lighter than ever.
Aside from emerging machines and tools that are products of technology, agriculture industry also uses technology to act as the field manager!
How is this done? Robotics does not simply refer to physical machines, it also refers to software that is capable of processing data or even answers question as if it is human! Because of this, an agriculture manager is born that can act as a virtual manager in the field. This is also good in the agricultural business!
There are also machines that are autonomous which means these can be manipulated despite its distance in the field. Remote controls are rampant with the use of telematics! Some agriculture machines were created to do simple and repetitive tasks, it lightens the work of humans and it makes everything faster and more accurate.
In fact, there are now tractors that are autonomous and can be controlled remotely which are capable of seed planting, fertilizing the field, apply and spread the needed chemicals and even harvest fully grown and ready crops for the season!
It may seem unbelievable but these robots and machines are truly existing. As you can see, technology is really important in every aspect.
It may cost a lot but it definitely pays off especially in the agriculture industry.
Now, planting and harvesting are not as difficult as before. Thanks to our growing technology, the things human can’t do in the past are now possible. Technology must not be undermined, it should be explored and use most of the time for it can do so much in so little time.
